HOW TO REACH
The Athens International Airport is a major international hub for Southeastern Europe and all major international and budget airlines operate this route. Grecian airlines like Aegean Airlines, Astra Airlines, Olympic Air, and Sky Express ferry tourists and residents to all Greek islands that have an airport. International airlines like Air France, Lufthansa, Emirates, Qatar Airways, Finnair, KLM, British Airways, Swiss Air, Air China, Turkish Airlines and many more offer connectivity to Athens from major cities across Europe and the world. Flights can be fiendishly expensive during the summer tourist season if not booked in advance so travellers should prepare their itinerary carefully. Budget airlines that operate within Greece have stringent buggage rules so be sure to check their policies before booking.
Athens Railway Station or Larissa Station is the city’s main rail hub and connects to the metro, the suburban train line and long distance destinations in Greece. It serves North and Central Greece where Thessaloniki and Larissa are the major stations and goes southwards along the older line of Piraeus to Platy, Thessaloniki, Greece’s second-largest city. Athens is connected by rail to major cities in the neighbouring Eastern European countries like Belgrade, Istanbul, Budapest, Sofia, Bucharest etc.
Athens has two bus terminals, A and B, located at Kifissou Street and Liossion Street respectively from where long distance buses can be boarded to cities across Greece. The Athens Central Bus Station has the KTEL Atikka buses that cover the larger Athenian suburban region and are a reliable way to get to places like Marathon, Oropos, Lavrion, Sounion, and Rafina. In theory, Athens can be reached from other cities in Europe as it is accessible by land but the journeys would be extremely long with many bus and route changes as one would traverse through many countries’ road networks, depending on your choice of embarkation.
